LinuxTag 2007 - it's over
Oh no, it’s over! No more LinuxTag for at least a year. It was such a good event, I can’t tell you!
I’ve been standing at the Kubuntu-De.org booth with czessi, \sh, serenity, coastgnu, emonkey and monika and it was a pleasure working with them! It’s great to get to know all those people from irc in real life! Additionally we had support by the Amarok team (gnux, sven423 and nightrose) and especially apachelogger - a loud howl goes out to you guys (and gal nightrose)!
But I must not forget our booth neighbours: Ubuntu, linux4africa / Edubuntu and OpenOffice - thank you so much, I looking forward to share a booth place with you again sometime! A thanks in particular goes out to linux4africa for sharing their coffee machine with us - I fear I would have fallen asleep otherwise ;-) And thanks to O’Reilly for giving away free beer, there is nothing better when you have a hangover…
Hangover at the LinuxTag? Yes! It seems like we nerds and geeks now how to drink: Pretty much every night I went to a bar or something with my fellow kubunteros and amaroks, it was so much fun talking and drinking with you! The LinuxNacht social event in particular has been a very great event — we stayed until the beer was empty and the vins (including Jono Bacon) started dancing! Also a huge thanks to Trolltech for inviting us to dinner at Friday - and thanks for the cute shirt ;-)
Last but not least I want to thank hacktick and bullgard4 for planning the Ubuntu BBQ which was also a huge success for ubuntu-berlin in my eyes. Yes, we should have had more food but hey - who should we know that so many people would come?
I think it is not very suprising anymore that I got an average of 3 to 5 hours of sleep each day. Sure it was damn exhausting but that’s nothing to how much fun I had - the first six days in a row I could make geek jokes and people around me not only understood them but also laughed about them!
PS: A special thanks goes out to czessi for putting so much effort in the LinuxTag - without you my experience and that of the others would not have been that straightforward and easy!
